National Boys and Girls Club of America “Boys and Girls Club Week” – Teen Bon Fire

March 27 – 31, 2017

Boys & Girls Club of America is celebrating National Boys & Girls Club week!  Our festivities conclude with a teen bon fire on Friday, March 31st at The Club. The bon fire starts at 6:30 p.m. and goes until 9:30 p.m. We are encouraging all of our teens to invite a friend that is not a member. We also want to reach out to you and welcome teens from the school who are 13 and older. We will be providing food and music.

The Club also offers a punch card for $20. This offers busy teens the opportunity to pick and choose the days they want to come to The Club.  $20 gives them 10 punches/ visits.

Visit www.bgca.org or call Elisha Valdez at (505) 3659 for more information.  The Club is a great place for teens to stay busy, get involved in community activities, make a difference, and have fun!

Future City is a cross-curricular program that lets students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades do the things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build and then share the results.  The Future City Competition consists of five deliverables, or end products of the project. These deliverables document the team’s progress through the engineering design process and showcase the team’s city of the future. Teams are judged and scored on all deliverables.

Educators who register before May 1st will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $100 material stipends.  Click on the link for more information.
